- Map primary and alternate evacuation routes and temporary boarding sites or livestock holding facilities.
- Horse owners should have a halter and lead line for each horse. Keep them on or near its enclosure gate.
- Owners of any livestock should post emergency contact information in a conspicuous place.
- Make arrangements to ensure that suitable vehicles, trailers, handlers and drivers are available to transport livestock. Be sure your animals are familiar with transporting vehicles before an emergency.
- Make sure horses and other companion animals have microchip identification and that all animals have some identification.
If large animals cannot be evacuated, determine whether they can be moved to a shelter or be allowed to remain in an outside enclosure, based on the type of disaster, and the reliability of the location.
